Waffles or Crêpes?

No, seriously.

I don’t really care who wins tonight as long as we beat them in the final, but what do you prefer:

Waffles

or

Crêpes?

    Call me Sue Perstitious, I’d prefer people wouldn’t assume we’re already in t’final… 😘

    • Flat Oeuf 10/07/2018 at 7:04 pm

      No assumption, just saying well have to beat one when (sorry if) we get there.

      • 61SpursNut 10/07/2018 at 7:06 pm

        I work from a default position of our name’s on the trophy.

        • Flat Oeuf 10/07/2018 at 8:04 pm

          As long as it’s just us and not Taff.

  • Freund or Foe 10/07/2018 at 6:54 pm

    Waffles, no question.

  • 61SpursNut 10/07/2018 at 6:54 pm

    Waffles all day.

    • Fatty B 10/07/2018 at 7:00 pm

      All day?

      • 61SpursNut 10/07/2018 at 7:01 pm

        In every way.

  • cavey 10/07/2018 at 6:55 pm

    Waffles for me too.

  • HD 10/07/2018 at 6:56 pm

    I know Hugo isn’t a perfect keeper but he sure is a class act. That being said I go waffles.

    • tcy 10/07/2018 at 6:57 pm

      What, Horny worry? Never.

      • HD 10/07/2018 at 6:58 pm

        I’m retired Cincy, I have no worries whatsoever. 😁

  • tcy 10/07/2018 at 6:56 pm

    Make mine waffles, even though they will be harder to beat in the final

    • Freund or Foe 10/07/2018 at 6:58 pm

      Oh, it’s about football! Still waffles.

  • Hartley® 10/07/2018 at 6:57 pm

    • Freund or Foe 10/07/2018 at 6:59 pm

      • Hartley® 10/07/2018 at 7:00 pm

        I’m much better for finding you lot FoFy, how’s yourself.

        • Freund or Foe 10/07/2018 at 7:02 pm

          Grand thanks mate, just grand. So pleased you are here, wasn’t quite the same without you.

          • HD 10/07/2018 at 7:03 pm

            I think we all felt that way Fofster. It is a good day.

            • Freund or Foe 10/07/2018 at 7:06 pm

              This

          • Hartley® 10/07/2018 at 7:04 pm

            That’s the nicest thing anybody has ever said to me.

            • Freund or Foe 10/07/2018 at 7:06 pm

              Mean it. Now come over here and give me a hug.

              • Fatty B 10/07/2018 at 7:07 pm

                That’s the nicest thing no-one has ever said to me.

                • HD 10/07/2018 at 7:08 pm

                  Last time I saw you we hugged it out.

                  • Fatty B 10/07/2018 at 7:19 pm

                    Mine never came out.

                Remember fofty, no tongues. Remember last time 😂.

              • Hartley® 10/07/2018 at 7:09 pm

                We don’t do that sort of thing in Yorkshire, a firm handshake covers all that.

                • SpurAndy 🍒 🥧 10/07/2018 at 7:10 pm

                  I prefer a firm nod.

                  • Hartley® 10/07/2018 at 7:11 pm

                    So do I to be honest.

                • HD 10/07/2018 at 7:11 pm

                  Nebraska is similar but once in a while I am a softy.

                  • Fatty B 10/07/2018 at 7:30 pm

                    I have the opposite problem …

  • HD 10/07/2018 at 7:01 pm

    Mbappe could really harm Jan.

  • Caspurs 10/07/2018 at 7:01 pm

    I’ll go for the French speaking Belgium players only..

  • Superspoz 🏆 10/07/2018 at 7:03 pm

    • Tcy 10/07/2018 at 7:18 pm

      A lot to be said for a good tussle every now and again. Ask FoF, he’s always having them.

      • Freund or Foe 10/07/2018 at 7:35 pm

        I’ve got a cowboy shirt with some rather fancy tussles.

        • HD 10/07/2018 at 7:37 pm

    • 61SpursNut 10/07/2018 at 7:28 pm

      …would have scored that.

    • Fatty B 10/07/2018 at 7:29 pm

      Shakin’s brother?

  • ronwol196061 10/07/2018 at 7:32 pm

    Giroud great header

    • 61SpursNut 10/07/2018 at 7:33 pm

      …for Belgium.

  • HD 10/07/2018 at 7:33 pm

    This is damn entertaining, both going for it.

  • ronwol196061 10/07/2018 at 7:33 pm

    Who is winning?

    Tottenhams defence

    • Flat Oeuf 10/07/2018 at 7:34 pm

      True

  • 61SpursNut 10/07/2018 at 7:34 pm

    I can’t imagine why Giroud hasn’t got one on target yet.

    • ronwol196061 10/07/2018 at 7:34 pm

      I thought that header before was great

      • 61SpursNut 10/07/2018 at 7:35 pm

        …for Belgium.

      • Caspurs 10/07/2018 at 7:35 pm

        Was it a defensive header?

        • Flat Oeuf 10/07/2018 at 7:36 pm

          No

          • 61SpursNut 10/07/2018 at 7:36 pm

            …t intentionally.

            • ronwol196061 10/07/2018 at 7:37 pm

              It was a fantastic header

              • 61SpursNut 10/07/2018 at 7:37 pm

                ..for Belgium. We could do this all night. 😛

                • ronwol196061 10/07/2018 at 7:41 pm

                  I wont give up

  • Caspurs 10/07/2018 at 7:34 pm

    Giroud, snigger, chortle, guffaw..

    • 61SpursNut 10/07/2018 at 7:35 pm

      He’s modelled both of his boots on Kompany’s head.

      • HD 10/07/2018 at 7:38 pm

        Special order boots?

  • 61SpursNut 10/07/2018 at 7:37 pm

    Don’t mess with the Moose.

    • ronwol196061 10/07/2018 at 7:37 pm

      No moose is not good moose

  • ronwol196061 10/07/2018 at 7:39 pm

    What a ball

  • Fatty B 10/07/2018 at 7:42 pm

    Just had a wee squint (okay, I’ve always got a wee squint) at t’other place, guess what? Everything’s sh*t! I feel like I’ve been rescued from a cult.

    Real Fan, you b*gger, why didn’t you start this excellent blog sooner?

  • Caspurs 10/07/2018 at 7:45 pm

    It’s like making a delicious Black Forest gateau, you can’t rush these things..

  • 61SpursNut 10/07/2018 at 7:47 pm

    If only the waffles or the crêpes had a decent striker.

  • Caspurs 10/07/2018 at 7:48 pm

    This game has 👀 written all over it.

  • UnkleTaff 10/07/2018 at 7:50 pm

    That Kante’s a bit magnificent, isn’t he? His reading of the game is truly exceptional.

    • cavey 10/07/2018 at 7:50 pm

      Best player on the pitch in that first half.

      • UnkleTaff 10/07/2018 at 7:51 pm

        Easily.

  • UnkleTaff 10/07/2018 at 7:53 pm

    How many times did Lukaku touch the ball in that first half? I’d completely forgotten he was even playing until about the 40th minute.

    • cavey 10/07/2018 at 7:54 pm

      and that was because he missed his touch!

  • Caspurs 10/07/2018 at 8:01 pm

  • Flat Oeuf 10/07/2018 at 8:05 pm

    Thing with MBop is that he loses the ball a lot.

    Dembele has been a bit shit

    • HD 10/07/2018 at 8:15 pm

      He just shut the door on Giroud.

      • Superspoz 🏆 10/07/2018 at 8:17 pm

        He’s defended well but been a bit sloppy imo

        • HD 10/07/2018 at 8:18 pm

          …..and just replaced.

      • Fatty B 10/07/2018 at 8:18 pm

  • DAVID 10/07/2018 at 8:25 pm

    Chadli is so frustrating to watch, glad we got rid.
    Thought Mousa looked his age tonight, reminded me of when we played Juve at Wembley.

  • ronwol196061 10/07/2018 at 8:27 pm

    Hazard and KDB not doing enough

    • Fatty B 10/07/2018 at 8:33 pm

      KdB dissapointing ce soir.

  • HD 10/07/2018 at 8:27 pm

    Kante’s work off of the ball is magnificent. What an engine.

    • Superspoz 🏆 10/07/2018 at 8:28 pm

    • cavey 10/07/2018 at 8:35 pm

        They look pretty average tonight..

        • ronwol196061 10/07/2018 at 8:34 pm

          • ronwol196061 10/07/2018 at 8:35 pm

            Even cop a penalty
            They are not goodcenough

  • cavey 10/07/2018 at 8:34 pm

    No doubt about it, Chadli is the weakest link!

    • HD 10/07/2018 at 8:35 pm

      That’s why he is at West Brom.

    • ronwol196061 10/07/2018 at 8:36 pm

      Kdb and Hazard not doing enough

    • ronwol196061 10/07/2018 at 8:38 pm

      Cant blame Chadli
      He carried the stars in the last game

  • Superspoz 🏆 10/07/2018 at 8:35 pm

    Just goes to show how important the midfield battle is. Southgate needs to get it right tomorrow.

    • HD 10/07/2018 at 8:37 pm

      Dealing with Modric and Rakitic will not be easy.

      • Superspoz 🏆 10/07/2018 at 8:40 pm

        They didnt do bad

  • UnkleTaff 10/07/2018 at 8:57 pm

    Well played, France. Unspectacular but very disciplined. If we are to face them in the final we won’t be getting too many chances so we’ll have to make sure we take them when we do.

    • Freund or Foe 10/07/2018 at 8:57 pm

      If only we had a half decent striker.

        Wotcha Mac Gees, course man, bubbling at the mo. Can’t remember being this excited since…well yesterday. Still rember the last semi against ze Germans as an 11 year old joining Gazza in a few years, whizzing round the house when Lineker took the ball on the thigh and smashed the equaliser in the bottom corner. Back to crying when Psycho and Chrissy missed their penalties. What a roller coaster that was. What bout you G, how you coping?

            Good cheers mate, really enjoying this world cup, that & the great weather, been a lovely few weeks!! I remember 1990 all too well, was 14 then & watched much of it with my dad, were happy days. Have a good feeling for tomo, be so nice if at the end we can all claim Spurs won the world cup! Loving it on here too, breath of fresh air 🙂

            • AntSpurs 10/07/2018 at 10:06 pm

              Yeah, as much as I love Spurs, for me the internationals are of equal enjoyment. Us against them and all that. No frills, no agents, no commercial interest etc. Just playing for your country. All the clubs getting together for 1 purpose. HUGE game tomorrow and I really believe we have a team and manager to do it. Not about individual brilliances (apart from Harry) just a team (underdogs) who owe Croatia for their cheers when they stopped our qualification way back when and France …well for being France. Would be such a buzz around England and Spurs with our captain lifting that trophy. That’s it definitely not sleeping tonight.

              • McG ⚽⚽ 10/07/2018 at 10:12 pm

                Yeah, World cup winning captain Harry Kane kicks off in our new stadium… Truly the stuff of nightmares for those Goons, Spammers & chavs!!

  • HD 10/07/2018 at 9:57 pm

    I have never been one to question Hugo’s goalkeeping skills but like many I have questioned his role as our club Captain. Given the age of this French squad I now believe that his Captaincy, maturity and resolve has had to be a huge plus in the French dressing room. If that is the case, all the props to him.

    • AntSpurs 10/07/2018 at 10:08 pm

      I agree he’s had a really good tournament and well deserved of his captaincy. Hugo v Harry. Bring it oooorn.

      I’ve always had a soft spot for Villa as well. As long as I can remember they’ve always tried to play football the way I like to see it being played. The Tottenham of the Midlands, if you will.

      Jack Grealish is going to feel right at home here…

      😉

  • Syd 11/07/2018 at 1:47 am

    I have to say it. France had the perfect tactics, sit back for the first 15 minutes and work their way into the game. They were at time brilliant and either Croatia or England will have their hands full.
    If England, they should use exactly the same tactics as France did this game. I don’t think England have the ball control or movement of France and only HK could be the difference.

    • ronwol196061 11/07/2018 at 2:16 am

      Syd I think Belgium were capable in defence but had no attack and I have to put yhe blame in KDB and Hazard two of the PLs best.
      People blame Chadli and maybe Fellaini but they has been great up to now. The Belgians were very slow moving the ball forward and going nowhere. Tbey deserved to lose. Toby looked over the hill.

      The french were good but the innefectiveness of Belgium to create any worthy attacks was the mist evident thing for me.

    • AntSpurs 11/07/2018 at 3:23 am

      Ok I have 2 stats going for England to win this: the first is (pretty sure I read this on here however) 1. Pep Guardiola managed Barca in 2010 and Spain win the WC. In 2104 he managed Munich and Germany won it . He managed City this time and so ….that’s number 1. Number 2: (and I have not checked this out, excuse the lack of research, Andy, Ron, Bruxie and any other old farts 😜May remember this: when we win it in 66, Real Madrid won the EC, Burnley qualified for Europe, Chelsea came 5th and Man City won the league (albeit division 2) …Same as this year.

    • Sniper 11/07/2018 at 8:55 am

      Luckily, I get to sleep on it. A 6am kick-off here in kiwiland and I fear a failure against Croatia unless we man mark Modric. The entire “coming home” narrative will fizzle out to nothing. Again.

      • SpurAndy 🍒 🥧 11/07/2018 at 8:59 am

        Modric is special but Tottenham made him look average when they played Real at Wembley. I think it’s 50/50 against Croatia and 70/30 against France. We can do it but the odds aren’t in our favour.

        • Sniper 11/07/2018 at 9:38 am

          Yeah, but that was Spurs, not this ordinary looking England side…
          I reckon your odds are spot on for both opponents.

        Me, for one.

      • SpurAndy 🍒 🥧 11/07/2018 at 11:53 am

        I think there’s a range of levy/enic, satisfaction on here Cavey. I’m not 100‰ committed either way. It’s all about the balance, appreciate the good they’ve done but acknowledge what they done wrong or haven’t done. I’m probably 70/80‰ in favour atm but it’s mainly a gut feeling at the end of the day.

        • cavey 11/07/2018 at 11:57 am

          I’m very weary of him. I really wish he’d get players in that could have a pre-season, especially this season, with the WC players away for probably another five weeks.

          • ronwol196061 11/07/2018 at 12:04 pm

            The English and Belgian players..all 8 of them havent been on holidays they e been playing in similar systems as our own.
            They will need a rest.
            But whats the big deal?
            We will bring in a couple of players.
            Hopefully adding tobthe squad.
            I badly would like to see a new CM. It may not happen this summer. Mayve Dembele will go one more. Mayve Winks will be ok.
            Levy and Poch BOTH brough us to where we are.
            A great feat for me.

          • UnkleTaff 11/07/2018 at 12:09 pm

            And what if the players we’re looking to bring in are either still on World Cup duty or have recently finished?

            We know how Levy tends to work — nobody comes in until someone goes out. Two of the players almost certain to be leaving are Alderweireld and Dembele and their World Cup didn’t finish until yesterday. Danny Rose, another possibility, is still out there.

            I’m sure that what work that can be done is being done behind the scenes. It’ll certainly be interesting to see what effect the early closing of the transfer window will have on everyone, not just us.

            • cavey 11/07/2018 at 12:17 pm

              I suppose I’m just getting the jitters. Would be no good at poker.

          • SpurAndy 🍒 🥧 11/07/2018 at 1:12 pm

            At times I think that’s fair criticism. Not sure about now as few clubs are doing the business because of the WC, except the Spammers, but their shopping at Poundland.

    • ronwol196061 11/07/2018 at 11:35 am

      Life is not easy. Running a football club isnt easy.
      Its much easier to dream life away and be cynical. If one is going to compare Tottenham to any club,why pick Villa when you can dream big (it doesnt cost more) pick a bigger club.
      The reality of life and footie is not reflected at Chelsea or City. These are clubs where one day their fans won a lottery of sorts. It could have been Villa or anyone else.
      Tottenham are run like a business. It is a business for most clubs.A real business.
      Levy is a conservative businessman who likes to balance the books. Its painful.
      But real victory comes from pain. If Levy ran a country there would be pain and then gain.
      What solid ground we are on. Now we can enjoy.
      All the time people have knocked him he carried on his way sometimes making a mistake as we all do but sticking to the vision despite the tears. And he won and we won.
      Ive lost faith more than once with Levy as Ive needed a win. We all need wins.
      But he has obviously needed ti stick to the vision and its now reaping fruit…still on the edge if the spring of Tottenham.
      He will never get kudos. He is on a hiding to nothing with the crowd but I can see great strides in the links that our lads put up with the stadium and the largest amount of Spurs players at the latter stages of the W.C.
      Im proud.

    Vertonghen is a bit upset but he made a point about the number of spurs players in the semi final..

    Meanwhile, Eden Hazard aimed a dig at France’s defensive approach. He said: “I’d rather lose with this Belgium team than win with that France team.”

      And that is exactly why i chose France over Belgium, i just cannot stand that rat faced little prick.

      • ronwol196061 11/07/2018 at 3:40 pm

        I disagree with most about Hazard. I thought didnt do a great job in the WC. He wasnt the force that he was billed to be. KDB too.
        France midfield has Hazards number.

      The French response. “We’d rather you lose with that Belgium team than win with this France team.” 😂

      • ronwol196061 11/07/2018 at 3:42 pm

        I thpught the French were great defensively and fat superior in midfield than the Belgians and quicker

      • ronwol196061 11/07/2018 at 3:48 pm

        Vertonghens Id rather be alive at Tottenham than dead at the World Cup doesnt qualify him for Captain. I disqualify my own pick.

    I think there’s a range of levy/enic, satisfaction on here Cavey. I’m not 100‰ committed either way. It’s all about the balance, appreciate the good they’ve done but acknowledge what they done wrong or haven’t done. I’m probably 70/80‰ in favour atm but it’s mainly a gut feeling at the end of the day.

    Your gut makes an assessment of your pro/anti Levy feelings at the end of the day? Every day? Are you in the toilet at the time.

    • foeorfreund 11/07/2018 at 2:28 pm

      I think Levy’s a handsome fella. This may cloud my judgement somewhat, when it comes to the way he runs the club.

    Morning fellow boosters. Off on a 12 day road trip out to the Northwest to visit friends and family in the old country (Seattle area.) I won’t get to see today’s match as I will be traveling the long lonely road with the Mrs. Thanks to satellite radio all is not lost. Anyway I wish you and your country all of the best against those dogged Croats. I will be pulling for you. Backatcha later.

    The very high waistband gives it away :). Use to work with a old boy when I was a youngling and he used to have his suit trousers belted up at nipple height. Twas a sight to behold.

    Don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it. I’ll have you know it’s a very comfortable way of wearing trousers.

    • SpurAndy 🍒 🥧 11/07/2018 at 4:10 pm

      Unless your trousers are built for it that must be one of the worst wedges imaginable.

    I see we are being linked with Harry Maguire, i would love that to come to fruition.

    Bookies have us as favourites to sign him should he decide to leave Leicester:

    https://www.oddschecker.com/football/football-specials/harry-maguire/club-after-summer-transfer-window

    I say we take the £60m-odd we get from the sale of Alderweirld and plonk the lot on the Leicester City boardroom table.

    • McG ⚽⚽ 11/07/2018 at 4:25 pm

      I hear where you coming from, but don’t think I’d pay more than 35 mil, not quite reached Toby’s bracket yet for me.

      • UnkleTaff 11/07/2018 at 4:48 pm

        I’d swap him out for Alderweireld in a heartbeat. Toby’s best years are behind him and the best is yet to come from Maguire. £50m is the very least it’d take to prise him away. We were interested in him last year before he went to Leicester but we signed Sanchez instead.

        • UnkleTaff 11/07/2018 at 4:51 pm

          …apparently.

      • foeorfreund 11/07/2018 at 5:13 pm

        Took the words right out of Levy’s mouth!
        There isn’t a chance in hell that Leiceiceisterer would take 35mil. I doubt they’d take 50mil.

          Just woking up from an afternoon having ‘given yourself a day off’? Interesting euphemism.

    And what if the players we’re looking to bring in are either still on World Cup duty or have recently finished?
    We know how Levy tends to work — nobody comes in until someone goes out. Two of the players almost certain to be leaving are Alderweireld and Dembele and their World Cup didn’t finish until yesterday. Danny Rose, another possibility, is still out there.
    I’m sure that what work that can be done is being done behind the scenes. It’ll certainly be interesting to see what effect the early closing of the transfer window will have on everyone, not just us.

    Agree in principle and remind that Alderweireld and Dembele actually finish up on Saturday, pushing things back further.

    • UnkleTaff 11/07/2018 at 5:52 pm

      Yes, I was wondering who’d be the first to spot my deliberate mistake…
